The Michigan women’s track and field team obliterated the field at the Kentucky Invitational this past weekend.

It broke two records, won three events and posted four NCAA-qualifying times.

Senior Erin Webster has had success in Lexington, Ky., before. She held the 3,000-meter facility record going into the Invitational. On Saturday, she bested her previous record by more than five seconds (9:13.42). Junior Nicole Edwards recorded a personal best in the event, finishing in second and posting an NCAA-qualifying time (9:31.30).

Sophomore Tiffany Ofili also improved upon a mark of her own as she reset her Michigan Indoor Record in the 60-meter hurdles with a third-place, NCAA provisional time of 8.24 seconds. Unlike Webster, Ofili barely topped the record, besting her previous mark by just .06 seconds.
